One of the many things I like about you is your way of stimulating thinking. Rather than simply saying "Obama is a god," or "Obama should be
shot," you point out the larger issues that have to be faced regardless of who is running the government.
It would be wonderful, indeed, if a politician were elected who said "This is a tough one, one false move and we hurt our citizens. Let's go slowly
and with agreement until we work through the whole problem." But I'm always thinking of rainbows carrying unicorns.
I think somebody might have brought this to Obamarama's attention in the last few days.
And I was hoping someone would have brought
this to his attention when he started thinking about Obamacare, if not back when they were playing with Hillarycare.
I agree with you about walking off. The money is a problem, but so is the paperwork. I have two members of my close acquaintance in the medical
field and they tell me that it is approaching the point where they need to spend an hour on paperwork for each hour of patient care. No wonder
they're upset. "Damn it, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a pencil necked, paper pushing, bureaucrat!"
I agree with you, doctors will be walking. My fear is that the government will do one of two things. Either tell nurses to do brain surgery, or
order the doctors to stay on the job by declaring a national medical emergency.
And you're right, there isn't a short term fix. The very best we can do is persuade the country that the government is taking rational, honest,
effective steps that will address the problem. Unfortunately for Obama, anything he proposes now will fall short.
